Pop Francis today has just announced what is currently cooking for all Catholic Church leaders. Speaking today on a Wednesday, Pop Francis put it that there are ongoing plans to cut the salaries of all Catholic Church leaders salaries to keep the Holy See's Finances in order. He said that cardinals will receive a 10 percent cut in salaries while that of priests will be reduced by 3 percent.

This is something that is something that is going to be effective by first April. He added that the salaries of department leaders and secretaries of dicasteries will also be reduced by eight per cent according to the new laws.

"An economically sustainable future today requires, among other decisions, the adoption of measures concerning staff salaries," He said.

"Although the Holy See and the Vatican City State are adequately capitalised, it is necessary to ensure sustainability and a balance between income and expenditure in current economic and financial management," Pope added.

He said that Bishops are receiving large salaries besides the donations that they receive.
